NEW BUSINESS: Al Gillen made a motion, seconded by Peggy

A nominating committee consisting of Tom Sweeney, John
Donellan or Tom Hyland, and Pat Gillen will seek to fill
the posts of Vice-President, Treasurer, Social Chairman,
Planning Chairman, Public Relations Chairman, and two
members-at-large. The Gillens told about a reasonably priced
cruise with Andy Cooney, featuring Irish entertainment, out of
Fort Lauderdale, Florida in January 2002. Elaine Hyland's
brother, Thomas Jackson, just passed away. There were
members in attendance. After the meeting was adjourned, videos
of Hal Roach, a superb comedian, were shown.
